Microsoft WORD is a right P.I.T.B!
I am having to redo some of the formatting in my thesis. I have used Microsoft Word(r) for many years but more for letters and short reports. Currently I am creating a list of figures, tables and photographs. I have about 250 or so figures, about 10 tables and 6 photographs.
With short reports, there is no problem with adding a title and creating your own table to list them and add a page number. But with 500 pages, it's better to use the captioning function, where you label your diagram as a table, figure or photograph, etc. Microsoft Word (R) is supposed to be able then to create separate lists of tables,figures and photographs. BUT it is insisting on creating one long list with all items chucked in together. Not only that, where I hadn't left a line between the caption and the figure, it included a copy of the graph or whatever in the list of contents!
Tearing My Hair Out!
I have been for a walk, so am back now to try and sort this. This product has been round for long enough that it OUGHT to be intuitive as to how to do it! OK, feel better after walk and rant - back into the fray!
